Posted on July 14, 2012

You come out and put on your lightest most comfortable clothes, and splash on the most refreshing eau de cologne. I always feel compelled to put on some make-up and wear lots of groovy silver jewelry – something about a day at the beach makes me want to be extra sparkly. The question is – “how can I maintain this sort of enthusiasm on Wednesday when I am trapped at my desk?” The answer: “Colors.”

How to Carry the Colors of the Beach With You Everyday

  • Stop wearing black. Just stop. I know you’re a New Yorker, and although you look cool and slim –you make everyone feel depressed. Wear white and turquoise and orange – pretend you are on a cruise everyday of the summer!
  • Embrace Nail Polish – Cool Ocean Blue, Soothing Mermaid Green, Refreshing Clementine and Wet Watermelon – look at your happy fingers briskly typing away on the keyboard. Colorful fingers are busy fingers!
  • Bring on the sparkles – look sun-kissed. Try a quick dash of bronzer. My favorite is Bobby Brown Shimmer Brick. I put it on and I look like I went on vacation – insta-suntan. Wear dangly fun earrings and bangles that tinkle when you walk. Be like the sand and the ocean and reflect sunlight wherever you walk.
